After The Weeknd dropped his latest EP, fans were 150% sure that a lot of the songs were about his very public breakup with Selena Gomez.
One of the songs, “Call Out My Name,” is a heartfelt, raw, and honest ballad to Gomez from The Weeknd, even talking about how he almost gave her a kidney when she needed a transplant from her battle with Lupus. While performing at Coachella, the singer and songwriter performed the hit song and, had a few emotional moments where he couldn’t finish the lyrics.
The crowd was so quiet, you could literally hear the pain in his voice.
Clearly, the singer is having some emotional problems when it comes to his breakup–can you blame him? His ex was seen with her ex not even a week after their split, it has to hurt. Twitter was deep into their feelings over the performance.
